Ethereum is a smart contract platform that enables developers to build tokens and decentralized applications (dapps). ETH is the native currency for the Ethereum platform and also works as the transaction fees to miners on the Ethereum network. Ethereum is the pioneer for blockchain based smart contracts. Smart contract is essentially a computer code that runs exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third-party interference. It can facilitate the exchange of money, content, property, shares, or anything of value. When running on the blockchain a smart contract becomes like a self-operating computer program that automatically executes when specific conditions are met. Ethereum allows programmers to run complete-turing smart contracts that is capable of any customizations. Rather than giving a set of limited operations, Ethereum allows developers to have complete control over customization of their smart contract, giving developers the power to build unique and innovative applications. Ethereum being the first blockchain based smart contract platform, they have gained much popularity, resulting in new competitors fighting for market share. The competitors includes: Ethereum Classic which is the oldchain of Ethereum, Qtum, EOS, Neo, Icon, Tron and Cardano. Ethereum wallets are fairly simple to set up with multiple popular choices such as myetherwallet, metamask, and Trezor.

'Tael is a digital token for safe consumer products. Thanks to its ability to be seamlessly integrated by third parties, it allows for a wide token use-case through interchangeability of the loyalty tokens on the blockchain. Tael’s first use-case is seen in Techrock’s safe consumer products ecosystem. Techrock applies banking-level, tamper-proof NFC smart-labels to consumer goods, pairing them with their digital representations on the blockchain. Consumers ‘touch’ the label with their smartphones to verify a product’s authenticity, discover the product’s journey along the supply chain, and be rewarded for their purchase. Techrock protects products where authenticity matters, such as infant formula, cosmetics, alcohol, and supplements. Tael tokens are used in the loyalty point ecosystem to reward consumers and encourage behavior in the Techrock channel while generating unique data for all companies in the value chain. Tael’s vision is to bring blockchain based payments into the mainstream, across Asia and beyond.'
